The new sport of Supa Punt™ was created by John Luckie from Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia in 2015. It is a one on one kicking game.
Equipment Required: oval shaped football, football field of any code.
Supa Punt™ is fundamentally a very simple game that can be played by anyone who likes to kick an oval shaped football.
Essentially what Supa Punt™ does is give players an objective and sets out a framework of rules, most of which are common sense with an understanding of the concept.
Supa Punt™ is a non-contact kicking game played one on one, or in doubles, on either a rugby union, rugby league, soccer, or gridiron field.
Players are attempting to gain a territorial advantage with the aim of scoring a point by kicking the ball across their opponents goal line.
The two main rules which govern the game are the two meter band and the seven second rule.
1) THE TWO METER BAND
- Players are allowed to move sideways (or across the field) behind a line created from where a player gathers the ball.
- Players can move backwards or away from the opposition goal line while in possession of the ball, but they should not move forwards or towards the opposition goal line more than two meters while moving in to kick.
- If the ball is knocked forward, the return kick should be taken in line with the point of first contact.
- If the ball is knocked back, the return kick should be taken in line with where the ball is re-gathered.
2) THE SEVEN SECOND RULE
- From the time of first contact with the ball, a player is allowed no more than seven seconds to return kick.
- If contact with the ball is not made before the ball reaches a standstill, the seven seconds will start at that time.
The skills required in Supa Punt™ are common to many codes of football, thus creating a level playing field. Players can match their skills against players from codes they would otherwise not meet on the playing field, hence creating a contest that does not favor the skills from any one.
